New Book: Reaching Beyond the Veil

May 30, 2013

Unlocking the Mystery of Modern Spirit Communication


As an active paranormal researcher for nearly twenty years, author April Slaughter has delved into almost every facet of the unknown from spirits and psychic phenomena to UFOs, Cryptozoology and more. She is one of America’s leading researchers into the study of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP), Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), and is the first to introduce her personal experiences with Induced After Death Communication (IADC) to the paranormal field.

Communicating with the spirits of the dead is a timeless fascination, and today is no exception. Reaching beyond the veil to those who have passed is also as controversial as it is intriguing. Our society is inundated with paranormal media, leaving many to wonder how much of what we see and hear is real.

After years of exhaustive research, author April Slaughter shares her personal experiences with talking to the dead using various devices and techniques in this thought-provoking and often emotional book. April’s work challenges many assumptions people have about communicating with the dead without claiming to have all of the answers. Read. Be challenged, and walk away changed.

“At a time when ghostly encounters are sadly and most often depicted as, and defined by, people covered in electronic gadgets shouting the names of the deceased into moldy basements and dark attics, April Slaughter restores heart, humility and sincerity to one of humanity’s oldest, yet often misunderstood dialogues. In fostering a sense of obligation and sympathy between the living and the dead, April shows what this relationship once was and can continue to be: a loving exchange between neighbors and kin.”

“April Slaughter presents a compelling personal journey into the heart of communicating with the dead, and gives a refreshing and honest assessment of an often controversial field. Anyone who has ever reached out to loved ones in the afterlife will find this book insightful and inspiring.”

Rosemary Ellen Guiley
Co-author, Talking to the Dead

“April Slaughter takes a controversial subject and provides the reader with an intimate yet well-researched perspective. Even if one disbelieves in afterlife communication, Slaughter shows the human face and living relevancy of communicating with the departed.”

“I have been the subject of many interviews over the last ten years. I can honestly say that my interview with April was the most interesting I’ve ever had. She was full of ideas and insights that I had not considered. At one point, I felt like I was interviewing her. This book is a must read, even for people who have read many other books in the field of afterlife research.”
